Title:
Costell Action

Author:
Salvatore Mauro

Description:
Présentation du projet In this project the texture has become my central technique, I had already experienced it in the past through photography, but in this case I turned rather to the language of design, so I chose nets of various shapes and sizes and used them to create bottoms and layers that reach up to twelve levels. The pictorial supports I use are multilayer circles of different sizes, these circles represent planets and stars that will create a large work that will take the name of "Costell action". What interests me about this installation is its material aspect, that is the pictorial texture that is somewhat reminiscent of photographic pixels, in fact at first glance the image is not noticed, as if it were a blurry photo, or too zoomed and it takes a little to bring it into focus. These circles will be arranged in such a way as to compose an imaginary constellation after a hypothetical big bang. Every day I published an image of a work on the web and then asked the public to give it a name, even of a loved one, and in the end these names made up the map of my constellation. Those who participated in the performance will find the names they have chosen in the work and will also be part of it. Objective The Costell Action installation also aims to involve the public where the work will be mounted, my project and to create a large interactive work that talks about the problems of the neighborhoods where I will come to take up my residence Video whit (french subtitles) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUrg79lvXBY
